It seems unfathomable that someone in the United States could be indicted, convicted, and serve a 2.5-year without being provided with legal counsel or any knowledge of what actions the State alleged to be unlawful. Even more disturbing is that someone could be found guilty of a criminal defamation crime when no such crime exists. Combine that with the Indiana Supreme Court upholding the verdict based on criminal activity never argued during trial and you have my case.
My summary of argument for my Petition for Post-Conviction Relief gives a sneak preview to how the State of Indiana shows no shame or regard for the Constitution of the United States in going after individuals who criticize individuals in the Indiana judicial system. Before the naysayers suggest I am manipulating facts or statements, this isn’t an attempt to twist the words of the Indiana Courts, it’s me untangling the twisted arguments the Courts used to rationalize upholding my unconstitutional convictions. My public defender, Rush County Chief Public Defender Bryan Barrett refused to meet with me before trial. Special Judge, Rush County Superior Court Judge Brian Hill refused to address why Barrett would not meet with me and refused to tell me what actions I was supposed to defend. Dearborn County Prosecutor F. Aaron Negangard prosecuted me for calling court officials child abusers. Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta H. Rush said Negangard’s prosecution was constitutionally impermissible but denied me relief from the unconstitutional convictions claiming my public defender tried to take advantage of Negangard’s constitutionally impermissible criminal procedure. At every turn I incur new hurdles which amount to little more than petty excuses to cover for the fact Prosecutor Negangard made me the target of a grand jury investigation for my statements Negangard and his staff “felt was over the top, um, unsubstantiated statements against either Dr. Conner or Judge Humphrey.” Yes. Those were Prosecutor Negangard’s actual words to the grand jury when he had me indicted for publishing statements about court officials without publishing supporting evidence to back my claim. Now I’m forced to file a Petition for Post-Conviction Relief so I can address the ever evolving excuses the State of Indiana keeps providing as to why I cannot refer to Dearborn County Circuit Court Judge James D. Humphrey as an unethical child abuser. Below are some excerpts from the summary of argument from my Petition for Post-Conviction Relief. I wanted to get this information out in the hopes of garnering some interest in my case or in the least, shaming some legal official in Indiana to take appropriate action. The petition is still a work in progress but I wanted to leak some information so people can get a grasp of the blatant disregard Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta H. Rush and others have for the U.S. Constitution. Please share this information with anyone who is passionate about abuses in government and protecting constitutional rights.
Deputy Prosecutor Joseph Kisor gave the following reason for what would be Brewington’s $600,000 bond:
“[Brewington] intends to try this case on his blog and I think that not only could be detrimental to the State. It might even be detrimental to him.” [Arraignment Tr. 20]
In describing my displeasure with my public defender refusing to meet with me before trial, Dearborn County Prosecutor F. Aaron Negangard told Judge Brian Hill:
“[Brewington]'s um mad that his attorney hasn't talked to him.” [Final pretrial hearing September 19, 2011 Tr. 78]
Chief Justice Rush claimed my public defender invited the constitutional errors stemming from my unconstitutional prosecution claiming Barrett:
“sought to exploit the prosecutor’s improper reliance on ‘criminal defamation’ to the defense’s advantage -- focusing the jury on the clearly protected aspects of Defendant's speech, and on that basis to find the ambiguous aspects of his conduct to be protected as well.”
Rush gives Negangard a free pass for an unconstitutional malicious prosecution for criminal defamation then punishes me by essentially claiming that my public defender “knew better” and took advantage of the “ignorant” prosecutor. If the Indiana Courts rule I'm not entitled to legal counsel, evidence, and the charging information against me, then I hope to make the jump to the federal courts.
And it goes on and on…. Stay tuned.
